Handling Humidity in Your Bathroom
Bathroom humidity is a common problem that affects the comfort, air quality, and even the structural integrity of your home. Fortunately, there are several easy steps you can take to reduce bathroom humidity and help keep your home safe and comfortable.
At Inaugural Home Improvement, we understand the importance of humidity control in the bathroom and recommend these four tips to cut down on moisture levels.
Install a Ventilation Fan
The most effective way to reduce bathroom humidity is to install an exhaust fan. Exhaust fans pull out humid air from the bathroom and push it out to the outside of your home, helping to reduce the overall humidity levels in your space. Additionally, exhaust fans can help reduce odors, mildew and mold growth.
If you’re not able to install an exhaust fan yet, you can still help reduce humidity levels in your bathroom by opening up windows for ventilation whenever possible. Doing this will allow fresh air to flow through your bathroom so that humid air can escape, reducing moisture levels in the space.
Invest in Dehumidifier
Dehumidifiers absorb moisture from the air and help lower humidity levels throughout your home – including the bathroom. For optimal results, place a dehumidifier near the source of moisture – such as the shower or bathtub – or in any area where there is dampness or condensation present.
Perform Regular Maintenance
Regularly cleaning and inspecting all areas of your bathroom will also help reduce humidity levels. Make sure to wipe down wet surfaces after every shower or bath and clean up any leftover water droplets as quickly as possible. Also inspect any pipes or other components around the room for signs of leakage or condensation which could be adding moisture to the air.
